Pink Floyd Records and Sony Music Entertainment Australia, have announced they will release for the first time on vinyl, A Foot In The Door – The Best Of Pink Floyd – a collection of classic Pink Floyd tracks chosen by members of the band. Pre-order the record now.
Originally released in 2011 on CD only, the artwork for this compilation is the last work of long-term Floyd designer, the late Storm Thorgerson. This is the perfect Pink Floyd album for both devoted fans and those discovering their music for the first time.
The career-spanning compilation features some of the bet known album tracks from 1967 – 1994, including the band's first UK Top 10 single 'See Emily Play', and the iconic 'Wish You Were Here, 'Comfortably Numb', 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' and 'High Hopes'.
The tracks have been newly mastered for vinyl by longstanding Pink Floyd associate, James Guthrie, with Joel Plante, and with lacquers cut by Bernie Grundman of Grundman Mastering in Los Angeles, California. The 2-LP version features the reinstated version of 'Time', with the ringing alarm clocks at the start of the track restored, after being omitted on the CF release.
The original sleeve design, has been amended by Pink Floyd Creative Director Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis and Peter Cruzon, to include alternate versions of the photographs used in the orignal CD version.
The albm package comes in a gatefold outer sleeve, with two separate printed inner bags, and is pressed on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl.
A Foot In The Door – The Best Of Pink Floyd will be available on vinyl from September 28, 2018.
